Anyone who has played Football Manager, Fifa, or Championship Manager has developed a list of players, and coaches they use, save and save no matter how big the club they are at. I’ve been playing Football Manager since 2007, and have found a group of players I can use through the years. Some have become legends in my games, some are players you know now, some aren’t.
